Hey, Yoga Man! – great new yoga and meditation practice book!

Yoga Practices for Everyday Life from a Prison Yoga Practice

“Yoga and meditation in the Modular Building,” and again, “Yoga and meditation in the Modular Building.”

I teach yoga in the prisons. Imagine walking into “the yard,” and here comes one of these tough-looking people who says “Namaskar,” and makes the prayerful gesture of touching his forehead and heart. The first time it happened, I was very surprised, and was brought to full presence of the here and now. I still experience this feeling of presence, although the surprise has left me. Now it just feels good!

This book grew out of the yoga classes I teach at Wake Correctional Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. The class includes hatha yoga asanas. This book has a range of yoga basics, meditation and attention and awareness practices suitable for any beginning yoga class.

  3. Hi Steve Got your msg via LinkedIn. If there is a chapter available on line somewhere please make that known. Hard to review with nothing to read or being able to judge whether a person would like to read further. Intriguing topic..we need just a tad more eye candy!

    1. Absolutely. The createspace preview is createspace and the Amazon entry on the book now has look inside enabled. The blog also contains a lot of the book material.

  4. Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and help others like you aided me.

  5. TB: Yogi Bhajan was the leader of the larger community. There we practiced Kundalini yoga, followed the Sikh religion, and the meditation was more focused on breath and mantra. When I started reading about Buddhism, it opened up meditation. The style I learned, and that I teach and write about is primarily Vipassana —also known as Insight Meditation, or mindfulness—are all the same domain of practice.
